How to Use Your Delta Skymiles for Other Than Flights
The Delta SkyMiles program is a frequent flier program that allows Delta customers to accumulate miles to be used towards various rewards. SkyMiles can be used to book flights to U.S. and international destinations, but they can also be redeemed on the program's website for rewards other than flights.
Visit the official Delta Airlines website. Log into your SkyMiles account by entering your SkyMiles number and password in the proper fields in the upper left-hand corner of the screen.
Scroll over to the “SkyMiles” tab, located at the top of the screen, so that a drop-down menu appears. Select the “Use Miles” option.
Click on “SkyMiles Online Auction” to use accumulated miles to bid on items and experiences in an online auction. Items up for auction include tickets to sporting events, electronics, vacation packages, gift certificates, tickets to shows and concerts and celebrity and athlete meet and greets.
Click on “Medallion Marketplace” to use SkyMiles to purchase items other than flights. Program members can purchase items like electronics, home goods, luggage and gift cards through a variety of chain stores. Members who do not have enough miles to purchase their items of choice can combine miles with cash to make up the difference.
Click on "Magazines for Miles" to trade SkyMiles for subscriptions to popular magazines. Magazines from the list include titles like "Time," "Glamour," "Money" and many more. The "cost" of a magazine subscription ranges from 400 to 5,500 miles.
Click on "Delta SkyClub Membership" to use miles to pay for a membership to the Delta SkyClub. One-year and three-year memberships are available. For additional miles, SkyMiles program members can also purchase a membership for a spouse or partner.
A SkyMiles membership is required to redeem any rewards from Delta. The reward program is subject to additional rules and regulations published and made available by Delta Airlines.
